Hanging Scalloped Keepsake
by Sir Stampalot



Panel One

Panel Two

Panel Three

 

Materials

Kit (UKS-001) contents
  • ·         3 sheets of Sizzix Mount Board (656492)
  • ·         3 sheets of Konnichiwa from Basic Grey (Koi Pond, Pagoda, Hello Friend) cut into:
  • ·         2 die cuts from Tattered Flower Garland die 657824
  • ·         3 die cuts from Fancy Flourishes Set die (655675)
  • ·         3½  panel die cuts from Scalloped Rectangle die (656698)
  • ·         5 label die cuts from Scalloped Rectangle die (656698)
  • ·         4 Red Book Rings 25 mm
  • ·         Ribbon
Need in addition to kit
  • ·         Cropadile/Hole Punch
  • ·         Pinflair
  • ·         Glue Runner
  • ·         Blending Tool with Foam
  • ·         Distress Ink (Gathered Twig)
  • ·         Two 6x3 ¾” landscape photos
  • ·         Title

Steps

  1. Cover the scalloped rectangle chipboard panels with the patterned paper (the paper is double sided so you can choose which side you prefer)
  2. Use a Cropadile or hole punch to punch the extra holes where needed ready for the book rings
  3. Distress the edges of these 3 panels with the blending tool and your choice of distress ink (I used Gathered Twigs).
  4. Select flowers and leaves in order to create 3 separate layered flowers.
  5. Distress the edges of all the elements (3 swirls, 5 label pieces, 1 part panel, all chosen flowers and leaves).
  6. Adhere part section of Konnichiwa paper to the middle base panel, off to the right hand side.
  7. Arrange distress edged flourish swirls around photos to suit and then adhere both to the chosen base panels.
  8. Arrange and layer labels as required and adhere to base panels.
  9. Adhere each flower layer with Pinflair glue along with the leaves onto the base panels.
  10. Select yourself a title and arrange onto middle panel including a swirl die cut if desired.  I’ve used chipboard letters painted with Red Pepper Acrylic Dabber for the G and C and then die cut letters using Sizzix alphabet die (654900) on Bazzill Red Rock cardstock (T2-229).
  11. Use book rings to join panels together in desired sequence.
  12. Finish off by tying ribbon through holes on topmost panel.
  13. Hang and Enjoy!

Please phone us on 01733 324 007 to purchase the kit (UKS-001) at £7.99 as it’s not available online yet – sorry about that.
